Eastern Maine Medical Center
A multi-phased $247M modernization project for Eastern Maine Medical Center (EMMC) broke ground with 361,000SF of projects that will provide state-of-the-art operating rooms, consolidated heart care, updated space for laboring moms and their babies, new neonatal intensive care space, and increased private rooms for patients.
The project utilizes evidence-based design in its approach to patient-centered care and is a Center for Health Design Pebble Project member. Phase 1 of the project includes a 29 single-bassinet neonatal intensive care unit, 6 labor and delivery rooms with 25 postpartum rooms, nuclear medicine, non-invasive cardiology, 8 invasive labs, 32 inpatient telemetry rooms, a 24-bed critical care unit, and 14 state-of-the-art operating rooms with pre-op and PACU. The new surgical center will include 2 hybrid ORs and connect with the existing outpatient ORs to create a single surgical department. Emphasis was placed on durability and ease of maintenance as well as infection control, and the comfort of patients and staff.
